…and why I’m ok with them doing it.
One month is short enough to make changes and long enough to see real results from your changes.
Our Fall 2018 Let’s Get Real Food Challenge started on October 20th and ended on November 17th. The challenge was to eat Real Food, as the title suggests. The grocery list was created by Coach Dave and Coach Amanda. The example meal plans provided were Coach Dave’s and Coach Amanda’s. Required tracking of food, attending weekly “accountability” meetings, getting weekly body-fat measurements and shopping from the challenge grocery list were the responsibilities of the challengers.
We had 17 Challengers. The total inches lost was 276 inches. The starting average body-fat percentage was 29 and the ending average body-fat percentage was 27. Two percent bodyfat in a 30-day time frame is a great starting point to achieve real results. The two percent correlates to approximately 6 pounds of bodyweight lost or 1.5 pounds a week. This challenge was targeting body composition.
The challengers each had different goals, but the common goal was improved body composition (less fat and more lean muscle mass). We had several winners at the end of the challenge.
Congratulations to Regina Boston with a 6.2% body-fat reduction, Kim Vuong Le with a 6.2% body-fat reduction, and Rob Tuggle with a 7.7% body-fat reduction.
Congratulations to Nina Catron with inches lost totaling 5 ¼” and Mickey Catron with a loss of inches totaling 4 ¾”.
We are proud of each challengers’ efforts in moving towards a healthier lifestyle! Our next REAL FOOD challenge will start in February, after the Superbowl. Perfect timing, if you ask us!!! Results happen through small daily changes. Let us show you how the numbers don’t lie!!!
Details on the 2019 Winter Challenge will be released on January 3rd, 2019.
Big food does not care about our health and safety.
That burst of energy comes at costly price
Is it fact or a myth?
While it does contain more fiber than white rice, this amount is not significant when viewed in the context of an entire diet.
The goal with eating low-FODMAP foods is to consume foods that are easily and fully digestible.
Even at first mention they sound like an amazing idea. Sugar and alcohol?!?!, sign me up, right?
